Lyrics from the CD "Thinking Man's Heart"

Words and Music by Ed Morales© 1992 Mor O' Les Music BMI / Common Man Music

Writing on the wall
G Song
Never mine to save
Color me blind
Just let those times go by
Do you remember
Look into our eyes
Pages
Tumble down
Just words
Unfinished
A thinking man’s heart



WRITING ON THE WALL

Hey Teacher Just what the hell were they supposed to learn?
Hey Preacher Just why the hell are they supposed to burn?
'Cause when you look into their eyes
and then they stare and wonder why
Will you ever read what's right between the lines

You see the reason that they're writing on the wall
You denied them their resistance and they're ready for a fall
You know that Justice is their reason
'Cause their reason is their law
You can hide it but you can't fight it The writing on the wall

Hey Brother Do you know what you had no right to steal
Hey Lover The scars you left are not the kind that ever heals
'Cause you will sit and question why
Their accusations you'll deny
You will never know what's Right...between their eyes

You see the reason that they're writing on the wall
You denied them their resistance and they're ready for a fall
You know that Justice is their reason
'Cause their reason is their law
You can hide it but you can't fight it The writing on the wall

Hey Teacher Just what the hell were they supposed to learn?
Hey Preacher Just why the hell are they supposed to burn?
'Cause when you look into their eyes
and then they stare and wonder why
You will never know what's Right ...between their eyes

You see the reason that they're writing on the wall
You denied them their resistance and they're ready for a fall
You know that Justice is their reason
'Cause their reason is their law
You can hide it but you can't fight it The writing on the wall

G SONG

When you see me coming round
You really want to take me by the hand
when I'm lost, I pretend that
I have found where who I am
I will re-learn
I will re-learn
When you walk
When you ride around in me

Try to right those things in places
You had once had tried to hide
When you walk, whne you find yourself
I'll try not to deny
I will re-learn
I will re-learn
When you walk
When you ride around in me
You will see me on my own
When you find yourself in me
You will see me on my own
When you ride around in me

Cause when you see me
you will take me by my hand
And when you find me
you will teach me that I can
Cause whn you read me
you will make me who I am

NEVER MINE TO SAVE

Can you see where it’s going to
Can’t you see it in my eyes
That loving you isn’t hard to do
It’s only in goodbyes

Can you see that I’m crying
Can you see that I’m trying to reach out to you
and do you still want me
Will you see me when I look your way
Am I holding on to something
That was never mine – Never mine to save

Decisions touch a careless mind
And we search for words to say
That forever’s just a simple line

Do you know that I’m crying
Do you know that I’m trying to reach out for you
and Do you still want me
Will you see me when I look you way
Am I holding on to something
That was never mine – Never mine to save

Never mine – Never mine to save

COLOR ME BLIND

Do you feel it now
Do you feel my eyes
Can you walk between what’s right
Between your lies

I see your desperation
I feel a reservation in your mind
Can you compromise

Will you see me run
Will you see me hide my eyes

When you talk to me
What do you say
That I’m equal just as long
I’m not in your way

You feel an alienation
You’re locked in implications you’ll deny
Will you realize

You won’t see me run
You won’t see me hide my eyes
When you change me in your mind
You won’t color me blind

I see your desperation
I see an alienation in your mind
Will you compromise

You can’t see me run
You won’t see me hide behind
Want to change me deep inside
You won’t color me blind

When you change me in your mind
When you try to make me hide
When you’re locked up in your lies
When you try just to deny

You can’t color me blind

JUST LET THOSE TIMES GO BY

Well I stop for awhile as I ravel down the highway
And I look to see how far I have to go
Well I wonder if it was right for me leaving
Was it for me or was it for the show
I guess life has it’s reasons
And we all must pay its dues

Well I stand in front of my memory’s churchyard
And another one of my birds have flown away
Someday it will be me who will take this flight
The story’s been told of who’s to go and who’s to stay
because life has it’s reasons
And we all must pay its dues
because living has it’s seasons
sometimes it rains on you

Sometimes we wish for tomorrow today
But have to learn to look away
Because times like these don’t last forever anyway
They’re gone, they’re past
And life has its seasons

The sun will shine your way

Well I sit under a tree to read the sky
The sun starts to set…another goodbye
The stars start to glisten in the night
Well I wonder how many people ask them “why?”
life has its reasons
there is no need to ask why
because sadness will have its moments
just let those times go by

DO YOU REMEMBER

As I see myself I wonder – where do I belong
Here I’m lost inside the mirror – image right or wrong
Decisions I have made – won or lost time again
Well if I just for once could only see deep inside your heart
Do you remember
Why can’t I …

Will I live my life what others – make inside of me
Are all those dreams just another’s – or your’s inside of me
Can I be what you are – as I am who I am
Well if I just for once could only be deep inside your heart

Do you remember
Why can’t I
Do you remember …
those dreams where I belong
and those thoughts that I had longed – as me

And when I look upon the other – will I turn away
Or will I face up to those answers – that were given yesterday
A chance to see it now – before it’s lost and never found
Well I guess that I just had to see deep inside my heart
Do you remember …
Why can’t I
Do you remember …
those dreams where I belong
and those thoughts that I had longed – are me

Do you remember …
Well who I am and what I am
And where you are and there you are
I see you there I see you here
I see you places everywhere you go
Do you remember …
well I see you now

LOOK INTO OUR EYES

When I look into your eyes image clears my mind
Frees emotions locked inside flowing as my life
I dream of happiness feelings so sincere
Don’t think of loneliness
And thoughts unclear are no longer near
When I look into your eyes

You have found inside of me what others wouldn’t see
And that I could ever need is just for you to be
And I live in happiness when you are here
There’s no fear of loneliness
If it appears it is so clear
That I look into your eyes

When I look into your eyes image clears my mind
Frees emotions locked inside flowing as my life
And I live in happiness feelings so sincere
With no fear of loneliness
The message is clear if it appears
Then I just have to see your eyes

The meaning’s clear my life is here
When I look into your eyes

PAGES

You search for the place where you’re going
By looking for the mark where you’ve been
You want to write the things you’ve done before
But you can’t escape the trap you’re in
Search for the reasons
To look past your wall
No wrong decisions – Just one page in it all

You try to read between the lines
But you end up starting all over again
You’re tired of having words from all the others
Fill up page after page on end
You make decisions
To learn from it all
You want a reason – To cut a page from it all

The lines are all the same for all the others
And for each they all fall in place
It’s up to you to make this sentence
And not let it all go to waste
You search for you Reasons
In the Book you call
Lost inDecision – of one page in it all

TUMBLE DOWN

When the hands of time wave goodbye
Don’t you cry – don’t you cry
For you know they die for you and I
You won’t ask why – you won’t ask why

In distress such a mess
You could die and no one cares a week from now
Spend your nights worrying
Thinking of mistakes you can’t forget somehow
Somehow …make your exits and take your bows
Tumble Down

Random motives, glazed eyes, shining cars
You’ve gone too far – you’ve gone too far
Never thinking, status seeking, social star
It’s who you are – it’s who you are

Think you’re cool and play the fool
Do your dance for show and hope they’re watching now
Spend your nights worrying
Thinking of the part you’re tired of playing now
Are you proud … make your exits and take your bows
Tumble down

In distress such a mess
You could die and no one cares a week from now
Spend your nights worrying
Thinking of the part you’re tired of playing now
Are you proud … make your exits and take your bows

JUST WORDS

Doctors of Biology once taught me and “it’s true”
That we all came from a primordial ooze
Ventured to the shoreline
Then climbed up a tree
Why did we climb down
When the view seemed good to me?

When you think about it …

Ministers of Theology just had to have their say
“How could you think that MAN came along this way!?!”
Stuck up on a pedestal
The likeness of that’s All
They forgot to tell us we were one step from a fall

When you think about it – they’re Just Words
But when you Think about it – they’re just words

Teachers of Philosophy tried to set our minds at ease
“It’s just a Kantian Utilitarian Egoistic squeeze”
Answers with a question
Asks it once again
Is the game show Jeopardy where they all begin?

When you think about it – they’re Just Words
But when you Think about it – they’re just words

UNFINISHED

Where’s the touch I once denied
When you reached out in sight
Of the blindness where I hide
I wanted to, but could not pass through
A space that I couldn’t find

Where’s the feeling in your lips
And the words behind your eyes
Want to hold before it slips
Away with you, where I follow you
In vain of what I do

Release me Just ease me
Let me know if you are gone
don’t let me need to hold on
I need to Just reach you
Don’t let me feel I’m wrong
or where the pain belongs Cause I know …

And as the time passes by
Fading image in my mind
Through the tears behind my eyes
I’ll reach for you, and long a touch from you
From the space I couldn’t find

Release me Just ease me
Of the need to question why
with the answers lost inside
I need to Just reach you
Take the wrong from in my mind
and it’s pain will pass in time but I know …

A THINKING MAN’S HEART

I look into your eyes, then deny, though I try
and not to care, want you there, hold you there
But do you really Oh do you really

You want to make it right, then you’re wrong, all along
it reaches you, calls to you, wants to you
But do you really Oh do you really

Well I want you in my heart, will it end, where it starts
oh never mind, cross the line, will I find
But do you really Oh do you really

And I try to let it go, don’t you know, that it holds
I want to feel, is it real, let it heal
But do you really Oh do you really

Is it wrong to try to hide those feelings
locked inside so simply
Or are the answers that I’m afraid all part of
another question to leave its mark
Lost in a thinking man’s heart

So I look into your eyes, then deny, though I try
and not to care, want you there, hold you there
But do you really Oh do you really
Yeah do you really – a thinking man’s heart
